Foo Fighters Reveal Fall 2014 Album Release Date, New Documentary
We’ve been hearing about the Foo Fighters’ upcoming album since last year. However, there still hasn’t been a release date or album title revealed, although the band has promised to do something innovative this time around.
The band gave an update to the press this past weekend, with more details revealed about its overall concept and when listeners can expect to hear the follow up to 2011’s Wasting Light.
First off, the still-untitled release is a bit conceptual. Celebrating American music history, each of its eight tracks was recorded in a different city: Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and New York. Beyond this, each song takes inspiration from the local style and involves local legends.
Frontman Dave Grohl has called it: “a love letter to the history of American music.”
It could be completely innovative, or an incoherent mess without much connection between the tracks – we’ll just have to wait and see. The album is expected at some point by fall 2014.
As well, the group plans to promote it with an HBO documentary series, which will focus on the making of the album. Grohl, who previously directed acclaimed documentary Sound City: Reel to Reel, will be behind the project.
Grohl started talking about this release while promoting Sound City, and since that point, we’ve seen a series of Instagram photos and have gotten updates from producer Butch Vig about their progress.
